The Capuchin Friars of St Anne's Friary successfully presented their fourth show of 'Voparinchi Saanz' ('An Evening of Parables') at Town Hall on Sunday, July 15, 2018.

Bishop-elect Fr Dr Peter Paul Saldanha attended as a chief guest the brief stage programme held prior to the drama. Fr Peter Cyprian D'Souza, Walter Nandalike, founder, Daijiworld Media Group, Michel D’Souza, NRI entrepreneur, Sr Lizzy Thomas, principal, Nazreth School, Suresh Attavar, founder, Chakrapani Nruthyalaya, Br Victor Craata, and Fr Paul Melwyn D’Souza, were present.

Appreciating the artists and gathering who attended the show Fr Peter Paul said, “With the intention of simplifying his teachings, Jesus Christ used parables in his life. He himself became a centre character in every parable. He gave a clear picture on the God’s kingdom through parables. The parables contain a moral message. He gave us an option for either supporting or opposing the moral which was hidden in the parable. It means parables teaches us to take a decision.
“Fr Melwyn and the entire Capuchin Fairy in the city is trying to spread the messages of parables which was used by Jesus Christ, through this musical drama. Definitely, their attempt will work out and it will help spread goodness in the society. The viewers should find out the character of Jesus in this drama and should take it to their homes,” he said.

Walter Nandalike said, “After watching the musical drama’s first show at Don Bosco Hall, I suggested Fr Melwyn to organize it on an open ground. This art form should reach thousands of people on a single presentation. Today, I am surprised that without any publicity, Fr Melwyn and his team has succeeded to make houseful their fourth show. There are no arguments on artists’ performance, direction and other areas of the drama. The drama has already gained huge appreciation from viewers wherever it was presented. We should support these types of dramas. Of course, 'An Evening of Parables’ is a new trend in Konkani and it should continue.”

Wishing success to the programme, Michel D Souza said, “The audience which gathered here proves how the musical drama 'An Evening of Parables’ has created waves in Konkani. It shows that our people always accept good and positive things. Capuchin Fathers are always known for dedication and commitment on their mission. By the musical drama, they are taking us to close to art and music. It will help our life in one way or another.”

In his speech, Fr Peter Cyprian congratulated Fr Paul Melwyn and all artists of the show. He appreciated their hard work and thanked the gathering for their support. Fr Paul Melwyn welcomed the dignitaries and gathering.

Meanwhile, ‘Vizmithan’, a devotional music album by Fr Paul Melwyn released by Fr Dr Peter Paul Saldanha. VJ Angeline compered the event.
